Expert Picks: Deutsche Bank Championship
Expert Fantasy selections Projected champion
Rob
Bolton
Jim Furyk, Phil Mickelson
Adam Scott, Tiger Woods
Tiger
Woods
The top four in my Power Rankings. Back injury notwithstanding, I’ve saved my last two starts for Woods for this week and the finale.
Mike
McAllister
Jason Day, Zach Johnson
Steve Stricker, Tiger Woods
Jason Day
Expect Day to start strong Friday -- his first-round scoring average at TPC Boston in his last four starts is 66.5. I think he's playing well enough to carry that momentum the rest of the week.
Chris
Dunham
Jason Dufner, Jim Furyk
Brandt Snedeker, Tiger Woods
Brandt
Snedeker
As of my selecting of this lineup, no one had picked Snedeker as one of their four and that's just fine with me. His recent form has been down and there are health concerns but the reigning #FedExCup champion loves this track and I expect him to return to form after nearly a full week away from competitive golf.
Ryan
Smithson
Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott
Webb Simpson, Tiger Woods
Tiger
Woods
The 2006 Deutsche Bank champion will be motivated after finishing just one stroke behind Barclays winner Adam Scott last week.
John
Schwarb
Keegan Bradley, Jim Furyk
Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott
Keegan
Bradley
Can't see him going winless this season, so put me down for a crowd-pleasing victory at TPC Boston. Bradley faded over the weekend at The Barclays but a course-record (for one day) 63 on Friday shows he's in good form overall.
Helen
Ross
Zach Johnson, Phil Mickelson
Adam Scott, Steve Stricker
Zach
Johnson
With top-10s in his last five starts, Johnson is a victory waiting to happen. He's rested after serving as best man at his brother's wedding and has lots to play for with the FedExCup and Presidents Cup on his mind.
Bill
Cooney
Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson
Tiger Woods, Adam Scott
Rory
McIlroy
It's his time to shine.
Anne
Detlefsen
Tiger Woods, Adam Scott
Rickie Fowler, Keegan Bradley
Adam Scott
The Masters champ is playing well enough to win a second Playoffs event. Why not go back-to-back and win in Boston?
Bryan
Mullen
Jason Day, Rory McIlroy
Adam Scott, Steve Stricker
Rory
McIlroy
The defending champ appears to be working out of his funk and will feel comfortable this week. He finished T19 last week at The Barclays, which included a 65 on Friday. In his previous event, he finished T8 at the PGA Championship.
John
Swantek
Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy
Adam Scott, Tiger Woods
Rory
McIlroy
His game has shown signs of life the last two starts and he can salvage what has been a lost season with a strong run in the Playoffs. The defending champ capitalizes on the chance.
Brian
Wacker
Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson
Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy
Phil Mickelson
Not only does Mickelson arrive off a final-round 65 last week, he won here in 2007 and has finished in the top 10 at TPC Boston each of the last two years. A win here will add his name to the Player of the Year mix.
Sean
Martin
Jason Day, Phil Mickelson
Adam Scott, Webb Simpson
Adam
Scott
The winner of last week's The Barclays has finished no worse than eighth in his past three appearances at TPC Boston. He has to be the favorite.
Amanda
Balionis
Rickie Fowler, Zach Johnson
Tiger Woods, Graham DeLaet
Graham DeLaet
Coming off a final round 65 at the Barclays, and a week which included 2 rounds where he didn't miss a fairway, the Canadian is playing consistent golf and his confidence is high. Oh, and how can you bet against the playoff beard?

I hope Stenson takes it. Dude is a class act. I watched him and Colsaerts play KJ and Charlie Wi yesterday at the NB3 Foundation event. Tiger pulled out of the event due to injury, and Gary Woodland played in his absence. Interestingly enough, Tiger played in the pro-am today in Boston.

Can someone tell Phil he has 3 more days of play left? Save some birdies for the other days, man.

I wrote this bit about the front nine a TPC Boston about a year ago: http://thesandtrap.com/b/profiles/nine_holes_with_the_front_nine_at_tpc_boston It's a pretty cool course. Definitely a lot of birdie chances.

Phil is on fire!

He blew it! Bogeyed 1. Now he has to birdie 6 of the last 8 holes to shoot 59.

Of course, as you know, Phil started on the back nine. And promptly bogeyed #1 (with Tiger). Then eagled #2.

I know. That's why I didn't say something like, "Read me describe all those holes Phil just birdied." I checked first. ;-)

You people are crazy. WTF Phil is imploding by not shooting  a 59? Hope that stupid joking around.

That was an impressive 63. I think he wins this weekend.

Think about it. He SHOULD have won the US Open. So really he should have TWO majors this year. And now....maybe the FedEx Cup too!

Player of the year, hands down Phily Mick baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • He started off playing the first hole exactly how he should: fairway, 20-footer for birdie to the fat side of the green, tap-in par.
    • @iacas-Tho it is nice to be able to take your time and type out what you mean to say this is one of the downsides to a forum too-You have to respond to a whole bunch of crap and a person can get all of their thoughts out uninterrupted. If you were been sitting in a room with @natureboy and he started drawing that entirely stupid picture with the lines you could have cut him off and spared all of us the pain of having to watch him so badly miss the point. I bet @natureboy is still going to look at the response-And I bet he is still not going to see where he went wrong. But that is because he is just that way and he is unable to see how stupid his own posts are and how little they actually deal with golf swings. His stick drawing is exactly why you asked for a video-Even though he posted it after you asked. His errors and flaws and stupid thoughts would have been even more evident if he had actually tried to make a vid.
    • Or… golf is hard, and he got hot for awhile. Wouldn't be the first flash in the pan. We'll have to wait to see what the true version is. He could be quiet for ten years and then win a few majors.
    • That makes a great third bullet point. Or a first bullet point, bumping my two down.
    • This photo and the text above illustrate pretty well exactly why I and the entire moderation team is now done with you. The image fails on two levels: The center image is not representative of an actual good golf swing. The right hip is closer to the right foot in the center image, yet you maintain that it's farther away. Whether the second thing is done intentionally or accidentally I don't know. I don't care to know. But it's very representative of how you argue, and why you're now going to be prevented from arguing. You pervert arguments to the point where we're no longer discussing the golf swing. You get basic facts or concepts wrong (like when arguing about course rating, misunderstanding the radius vs. diameter in faulting the rating process for higher handicappers). You focus on some small thing - which often isn't even something anyone else has said - and lose sight of the forest or the big picture. You're not here to help golfers. You're here to "win" an argument, a goal that as yet is unmet, and you have to post absolute crap like the above to try to do it. I had a bit of free time this morning. So I responded to your last post in some detail. It, as one would expect, contains a number of typical @natureboy traits: cherry picking a photo while ignoring the concept, failure to understand basic points, perversion of the statements of others, putting words in the mouths of others, use of vague words like "a lot" (often in combination with the "putting words in the mouths of others), and hyper-focus on some small largely negligible point. Nobody else should waste their time to read the below, or open the spoiler and read that. It will not shed light on anything, it will not help you with your golf swing, and you will not glean any useful information. It exists simply as my last effort at illustrating to @natureboy a small part of the reason why we're tired of him… even though as I post it I know with certainty it too will fail. I gave you twenty warning points last night. It was made clear to you what you had to do, and you failed to do so, flaunting the requirement in several posts. The entire moderation team - @mvmac, @RandallT, @boogielicious, @jamo, @billchao, @nevets88, @mchepp, others - and myself have simply gotten sick and tired of your entire persona here. You're constantly and never-endingly arguing stuff to the point where you bastardize things so much you're no longer even talking about the golf swing, and you fail to comprehend or respond to what's written to you in response. You have two real choices once your current suspension is over: You can ignore these warnings, continue to be a belligerent arguer, and receive a final 50-point warning that will result in your permanent ban. You can avoid behaving in the manner that infuriates the entire moderation team. That will likely mean limiting the topics in which you post quite a bit, because though you fancy yourself to be capable of discussing the golf swing from a theoretical perspective, you've proven that you are not. Now, I want to be very clear about something. You're not being warned or "handled" because you disagree. You're being handled here because you contribute nothing positive. You're belligerent. You don't help people. You don't demonstrate anything. You pervert and distort topics in order to make a point that often has little or nothing to do with how people actually play golf. You're on a mission to "win" an argument, not to further the understanding. You speak as if you know and fail to ask questions, despite the holes in your logic and posts being constantly exposed as gaping. You quite often fail to read what's written, take a beat, and try to understand it. P.S. This requirement is anything but arbitrary. The list of reasons are long, the surface of which was only scratched in this post. Arbitrary would have been to say something like "to continue posting here you must dress up in a purple outfit and post a photo of yourself diving from a diving board into a pool of jello." Asking you to post a video illustrating your point is the opposite of arbitrary.
